Waiting in

   Waiting in for a delivery of paraffin, dogs not too happy as he hasn't been for his walk today. I did take him for a late night walk last night, had a look for rabbits but he's too busy running around like crazy. He's a clever dog and well behaved but really does love to run. A nice juicy steak on the floor or the back door open so he can run around the garden and he'll leave the steak where it is and go run.

  Ordered a 3m poly tunnel/green house for the garden, or at least I think I have. I'm not 100% sure my cards worked, debit card. Got an email confirming the order was received but nothing else and nothing on the bank acc. site either.
  I did get my tobacco seeds this morning, can't wait to get those started. Will order another type in a week or two. Will be getting onions too this year, I normally grow the little ones(salad onions/spring onions) and need to get some main crop potatoes. Apart from that and some potting compost I think I'm set seed wise.

  No weaving or spinning but have gotten back into knitting the moss/seed stitch scarf. Was nice to take a little break from knitting after the rush of Christmas knitting I had to do. If I was smart I'd start next years Christmas knitting this month but probably wont. I got the glittery yarn I ordered, its really nice and soft. I was thinking it would be some cheap novelty yarn but its really lovely stuff. Will start knitting a few IPhone socks soon.

  Hope you all have a great day, take care.

Hi Jan, the pattern says use aran/worsted weight. I used dk and it fitted my head fine, approx 21 inches/54 cm. I did it in chunky yarn to and it fitted fine as well, seemed smaller slightly.
Yes I will be growingmy own tobacco this year, still have to pay tax on it when its ready to be smoked.
Thanks for reading
